The only reason I am writing this review is to warn people that Santa Maria degli Angeli closes down from 12:40 - 2:30pm. Or at least it did on the day we went, so check ahead. And we arrived at 12:40pm, but we didn't stay around until 2:30pm as we had other plans. I think it may also close down... More

The beautiful and large Basilica is close to the Railway Station; only about 10 minutes brisk walking. Inside it is a smaller Church, one built by St Francis himself. Seeing both churches is like a double reward.

Beautiful church inside and outside. It is the place where San Francisco of Assisi leaved his life. The old church is inside the new one and you can see the places where he was sleeping, his garden with the roses and beautiful frescos. You have to visit it. For me it was better even than the monastery of Assisi

Modern built church in a grand scale. Worth the trip out of Assisi centro. The ancient chapel within the church is quite unique

This basilica contains the Portiuncola which St Francis made the head of his order of friars. And where he took St. Clare in as a nun. It is a marvelous church where the Pope will visit in August 2016.

This is a main attraction to me and worth your time if you are in the Assisi area. There is the very tiny chapel of St. Francis inside this grand basilica as well as the infamous rose garden where in the hands of a statue of St. Francis, white doves actually nest. There is also the cave that he lived... More

We stopped here on the way to Assisi with our tour group. What a treasure! Beautiful inside and out! We took lots of photos once we got in past security. I am talking Army personnel, metal detector and machine guns! We saw monks that were studying there at the church and really just enjoyed the quiet Lovely afternoon! Definitely stop... More

Easy to reach by car or walking. In the valley and very visible from Assisi. With the effort to visit. Bags checked by Italian military.

This is another must see church just a few minutes away from the St. Francis Basilica and St. Clare's Church. There are a lot more churches that are stunning from the outside than Santa Maria Angeli but as soon as you enter this church, you will be stunned by the frescoes. There is a little church within this church. Besides... More
